Each week we will previewing new shows being added to the Fall TV Line-up. These recaps should help you decide what’s worth adding to your viewing schedule and what you should skip.

Abrams (Lost), Jon Favreau (Iron Man), Eric Kripke (Supernatural) and Bryan Burk (Fringe); Favreau directed the Kripke-penned pilot. To start off, have a look at the trailer for the new series and then read on after the jump for a full synopsis:
The Expendables 2 vs The Odd Life Of Timothy Green Vs ParaNorman vs Sparkle – Biff Bam Pop’s Box Office Predictions
This weekend a trio of new films are looking to unseat The Bourne Legacy from the top of the box office. But can a pumped up action sequel, a double dose of kids flicks or a diva’s swan song take down the reigning champ? Here are our predictions:
First up is The Expendables 2, starring a who’s who of action icons, including Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Chuck Norris, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bruce Willis. With this much (faded) starpower and fond memories of the 2010 original, there’s no question that The Expendables 2 will be the film to beat this weekend. Look for it to blow away the competition with a first place debut with $43 million.
Check out the rest of our predictions after the jump!
